Attendance Awareness Camppaign image - September 2017

Attendance Awareness Month is September, but the campaign to end chronic absence starts now! It’s a bigger problem than you probably think. Learn more about chronic absence and join the Attendance Awareness Campaign today! #SchoolEveryDay #AttendTodayAchieveTomorrow

Reducing chronic absence plays a key role in improving graduation rates, increasing academic achievement, and giving young people the best chance at success in their adult life. Join the Attendance Awareness Campaign and make a difference for your community: #SchoolEveryDay #AttendTodayAchieveTomorrow

Improving attendance and reducing chronic absence is not rocket science. But it does take commitment, collaboration, and tailored approaches. Each school or community has strengths and challenges. Across the nation, schools, communities, and advocates are taking steps to ensure children are attending school more regularly. K#SchoolEveryDay #AttendTodayAchieveTomorrow

Chronic absence is easily masked by school attendance statistics, even when average daily attendance appears relatively high. Even in a school with 95% daily attendance, 30% of the student population could be chronically absent. How is that possible? #SchoolEveryDay #AttendTodayAchieveTomorrow

Families and schools play a role in reducing the chronic absence rate. But communities across the country are starting to help by building public awareness and leveraging resources. #SchoolEveryDay #AttendTodayAchieveTomorrow

To stay on top of his game, Henry Wingo has to show up at practice EVERY DAY ready to work. School is the same. If a student misses even a couple of days each month, they could miss out on critical learning, making it hard for them to catch up. #SchoolEveryDay #AttendTodayAchieveTomorrow
